I know I am getting far to old to excitedly look forward to when the local carnival comes to town, but I can't help it. I love the WestFest! Since we live quit close to the parkgrounds where it is held, it makes for a lot of fun with very little effort getting to it.
This year we took the boys over to ride the rides on family night, when the rides are $1 a piece, instead of the regular $3-$4. The boys had a blast! And we had a lot of fun watching them have fun.
We watched the parade Saturday morning. Palmer ran around quickly and happily, grabbing any candy that came his way, and Brody absolutely lit up as the parade ended with a caravan of firetrucks (his favorite!).
And we ended the fair by watching fireworks. We had played with friends all day prior and barely made it home in time to watch the fireworks. They actually started as we were walking to the park. I kind of overdid it this particular day, and had contractions for four hours that night, but all turned out well, and we were able to have a lot of fun together as a family.
